Nutrition Response Testing
What is NRT? (Nutrition Response Testing)
Nutrition Response Testing is a safe, non-invasive system of analyzing your body to determine the underlying causes of any conditions or ill health. When these are corrected through natural, nutritional means, your body can repair itself and attain and maintain a more optimum state of health.
How Does NRT Work?
Nutrition Response Testing analyzes different areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in every organ and function of the body.
This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of those organs.
Each area that gives a response represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on your body. By testing these organs / areas, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit. This system has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, as in an EKG, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with his/her own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area being contacted is “active” the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
Our next step is to test specific, nutritional formulas against those weak areas, to find which ones bring the organ/areas back to strength.
When we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule based on your body’s individual needs, we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the organ/area to be active in the first place.
By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health. It’s that simple!
